101 Free Learning Tools

Let's get right to the point! The three posts below, have been found and viewed more than any other posts on ZaidLearn:
  1. A Free Learning Tool for Every Learning Problem?
  2. University Learning = OCW + OER = FREE!
  3. 75 Free EduGames to Spice Up Your Course!
On a positive note, my new eBook is catching up very fast with the 'Three Musketeers' above. Interestingly, the 'Three Musketeers' have one major thing in common, and that is that they all contain long lists of juicy learning resources (tools, content and games). Yeah, we all like juicy lists of learning resources! Especially, the learning tools list (No. 1) has been very popular, and has been quoted by several blogs and sites. Actually, it has even been translated into Spanish. The OER/OCW list (No. 2) has also turned out to be quite popular, and thanks to Tony Hirst's great idea, we can all search the 250+ sites (haven't counted, but that is what others have said) from one entry field. WOW, it feels great!

Actually, not! I revisited my Learning tools list yesterday, and was not impressed one bit! To deal with this stressful situation, I have revised the list to focus more on learning tools (and less on resource sites). Also, this time around I have made the learning tools list more visual, and you can explore it right here:

If you would like me to give a talk on this '101 Free Learning Tools' crash course, please give me a buzz. 101 learning tools should take approximately 101 minutes, if no questions asked. Anyway, you have the Slideshare (and PDF) version to play around with. If you ask me, I prefer to learn on my own rather than being taught. It is really fun to mess up and learn the hard way. It sticks longer, too!

I will create the text version of this 101 crash course soon, when I get back from another non-blogging vacation. No, I am not going on vacation, just taking a vacation from blogging so that I can learn and work in peace (Blogging is addictive, and can distract you from your work! What a discovery!). At least there is a new eBook and a revised learning tools list to enjoy while I learn how to think again. Finally, if you are really hungry to figure out what I will be discovering in the coming weeks, you can always explore my delicious learning adventure. Yes, I will be updating this one during my non-blogging holiday. Peace :)

Thanks for the list. While I'm well up to speed on the subject, I found at least a dozen new and interesting tools.
